Venturer profile: Richard Arnopp

“I have been an interested spectator of archaeology from the fringes since I was very young. However, over the last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to become involved in the investigation of an important multi-period site in east London – see

It’s a great privilege to be able to actively support the investigation of a site as important as Flag Fen, and also the DigVentures team in their innovative approach to fund-raising. I wish them every success!”

Great stuff Richard – thanks, and welcome aboard!
